Nanos tracking on the economy

Over the past month, the Economic Mood Index along with the Pocketbook Index and the Expectations Index have remained relatively unchanged. Of note, there was a small net increase in the perception of real estate value for the next six months.

These are the key findings of the consumer confidence tracking study completed by Nanos on December 19th and 20th, 2012.

The current wave is based on a representative random sample of 1,000 Canadians, conducted online by Nanos Research between December 19th and 20th, 2012. The results were weighted using the latest census information and statistical testing suggests that the research is an accurate depiction of the views of Canadians at the time of the research.

Talking Past Each Other...

So much for the Canadian way -- of earnest and good faith negotiations coupled with an ability to at least make an effort to meet the other party halfway. Instead, all they can manage is deadlock.

Understanding seems to have gone AWOL from the real politik dictionary. What we know isn't worth a damn:

- meet the Minister they say;

- Chiefs will not meet anyone other than the Governor General and Prime Minister.

Tick, tock, tick tock. What a lost opportunity fraught with incalculable personal and political consequences.
